How it Works
Submissions are invited from artists aged 18 years or older working anywhere in the world. A maximum of 100 artists will be able to participate in the ART360 Magazine, of which approximately 30 will be selected to participate in the broadcasts.
The selected artists will be invited to either take part in a live interview, deliver a demonstration, workshop or performance. All Interviews will be conducted by one of the Pure team.
All submitting artists will also receive additional benefits including discounts on Pure clubhouse membership and courses, and opportunities to take part in physical exhibitions and events delivered by Pure (additional fees and sales commission are payable for this element - see what it costs table).
Added bonus: All submitting artists will be invited to attend 2 Pure marketing workshops free of charge prior to April 2021.
What do I need to submit?
For your page in the ISSUU digital magazine you will need to submit up to 4 images, one of yourself working or with your artwork and up to three pieces of artwork (see FAQ's for further details). You will also need to submit approximately 100 words about yourself, your practice and your artwork, written in the 3rd person. The ISSUU digital magazine is searchable so the more information we have about your artwork and social media links, the easier it will be for you to reach your audience. We recommend you keep a separate copy of your statement etc in case of problems during upload and you ask a friend or family member to proof read your copy before you submit.
If you are selected as 1 of the artists to be included in the broadcasts, you will also be asked to provide a short video of yourself in your studio or workspace. This can be you demonstrating, or talking about your practice or just a simple show around to set the scene. These videos will be used for event promotion and will be included in the magazine, as long as they are received prior to magazine publication.
The videos will need to be uploaded to Youtube or Vimeo by yourself and URL link provided to us.
When will I be notified if I am 1 of the 30?
The 30 artists selected to take part in the broadcasts will be notified by the end of January. You can decline to take part in this aspect even if you are selected.
What does it cost?
All submitting artists will pay £65 (or equivalent) and be guaranteed a page in the ISSUU digital magazine and will also be included in all social media activity.
From the maximum 100 artists who submit, approximately 30 will be selected by an invited panel to participate in the broadcasts. These artists will pay a further £95 (or equivalent) broadcasting fee. Those who elect for a bespoke film to be created will pay the broadcast fee of £95 in addition to the videographers fee, which will be from £400
What is the submission deadline?
Submissions will close when we receive 100 entries or on 14th December, whichever is the sooner.
Do I get to keep profits from sales?
If you sell - which we sincerely hope you will - you keep all the money from any sales generated as a consequence of this activity*
*Note: Additional fees and sales commission will be payable for those who participate in physical exhibitions and events with Pure in due course. Pure will also take a 40% commission on any sales they manage directly on behalf of the artist.
